Silicon Valley and Office Christmas Party star T.J. Miller was arrested early Friday morning in Los Angeles for battery on a cab driver, police said.
The arrest took place at 1 a.m. Friday morning after an altercation with a cab service driver resulted in Miller allegedly assaulting the employee over a political argument involving Donald Trump, LAPD officer Jenny Houser told The Hollywood Reporter.
The incident was recorded as a private person arrest, commonly known as a citizen’s arrest, the official said. Miller was taken into custody by LAPD officers and released without having to post bail later that same morning, officer Houser said.
LAPD did not confirm which car share company the driver was employed by.
A request for comment from Miller’s legal representatives was not immediately responded to.
Miller is set to keep his hosting gig at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, according to the Los Angeles Times. On Sunday, Miller tweeted that he might possibly address the incident during the awards show airing tonight on A&E.
Tonight I will address the elephant in the room at @CriticsChoice on A&E. Tune in and find out.
